I have a installed a VCSA 7.0 U1, it works fine. During the vCenter Server configuration of the network settings I have a probleme with the FQDN for the system name. When I try the IP Address or the FQDN I get the answer saving of the IP configuration not possible. When I connect over SSH to the server I can check with nslookup the DNS configuration without problem, forward and backword. Now I hang in the configuration with no way out.
How can help me to finish my configuration to work with the VCSA.
Thanks for help
You're most likely experiencing a known issue.
Deployment of a vCenter Server Appliance by using port 5480 at stage 2 fails with unable to save IP settings error
If you use
https://appliance-IP-address-or-FQDN:5480in a Web browser, go to the vCenter Server Appliance Management Interface for stage 2 of a newly deployed vCenter Server Appliance, and you configure a static IP or try to change the IP configuration, you see an error such as
Unable to save IP settings.
I'm afraid that this issue has not been fixed yet, at least there's nothing in the release notes about it.
So the only "workaround" for this is to enter all the settings in the installation wizard, and run both stages right after each other.
I'm having the same issue. Shame VMware is taking error message lessons from Microsoft. Thankfully in my case I am not in a hurry and just preparing for a new build in January, but very disappointed with this.
Do you have both forward and reverse DNS configured for the appliance? This has been a requirement for some time now, and these issues always seem to come back to people either having no DNS, or forward DNS only.
I am facing the same problem: "Unable to save IP settings" error message at step 2 during Stage 2 vCenter server setup.
I was running UI installation executable on Windows Server 2016 Std, then trying the same on Windows Server 2012R2 Std.
My DNS setup is proper: both A and PTR records are correct for vCenter appliance.
Any other suggestions ?
I have configured a DHCP with a reservation for the VCSA.
During the upgrade I set up this DHCP.
At the end of the installation from the Management Interface I have correctly reconfigured the IP address
the workaround to this bug is to use static IP configuration in the Wizard in Stage 1, once the vCenter powered on and ready for Stage 2, SSH to vcenter, edit /etc/systemd/network/10-eth0.network, change DHCP=no to DHCP=yes, save the file and redo your Stage 2. Once you done, change it back to DHCP=no.
NOTE: you don't need DHCP server/service for this to work. However, you may receive a second IP from DHCP server if you have one. BUT it will keep using your static IP as primary. Once you done your vCenter deployment, change it back and you will not get IP from DCHP

Configure vCenter with a static IP while deploying the ova. Once vCenter is up, SSH to it, Edit /etc/systemd/network/10-eth0.network file, change DHCP=no to DHCP=yes, save it then refresh your https://<vcenter_hostname>:5480 setup page will fix it. It doesn't need DHCP server/service for this to work. Once your setup done, change it back to DHCP=no.
